Flags on Mobile

Flags in your account registers can be a good way to keep track of specific expenses. Perhaps you want to mark all of your tax-deductible transactions with a red flag, all of your reimbursable transactions with a purple one, or just use them to add some  pizazz to your register—it’s entirely up to you!

Do I need to use flags in my budget?

Flags are one of those cherry-on-top features. Your budget can be just as successful with them, as without them. 😊

Keep in mind that you can change your mind, and change your budget to reflect that. If you choose not to use flags now, but want to in the future, you can absolutely start using flags at a later date, and vice versa!

You can flag a transaction by selecting your desired flag color in the transaction details, or selecting multiple transactions and tapping More > Flag:

On Add Transaction screen, scroll to the bottom of the screen to toggle flag color selection for the transaction

To add flags to several transactions at once, select them with the checkmark, tap the More icon in the bottom right, tap Flag

Search Using Flags

If you’re using flags to earmark a certain group of transactions, you can later use the search feature to search for the flag color. In the search bar, type the full name off the flag color you're looking for from the options provided.

This will filter your register so that only the transactions assigned that color will be shown. From there, you can select all of them (or only some of them) to see the Selected Total at the top of your register.

Search for a flag color, then select some or all transactions to see the Selected Total at the top of your register

Of course, you can always change the flag color of a transaction, or remove it entirely. To change it, tap on a transaction to open the details window, and tap on the flag color you would prefer. To remove it, click on the no color (gray x) option, and save your change—if needed!
